How to write Akan Names

Have you ever tried coming up with a good name for a character in your favorite book series? If you’re like, me, then you’ve probably spent hours trying to come up with an Akan name, but you still end up with the same boring name every time.

I’m here to help you with that problem. I’ve collected some Akan names from different sources, including novels, movies, and comics, which you can use to come up with a name for your characters is your favorite book series.

Here are some tips to create Akan names.

Keep it Short and Simple

Have you ever tried to come up with a name for a character in a roleplaying game? If so, you know how hard it can be. You begin with a pile of names and eventually you find one that you like, but getting it right the first time is a challenge.

This is because they are long and boring names. You should find names that are short and simple.

It’s a pain to have a long, unwieldy name. You can’t just be Kaitlin or Jane or Taryn. You need something specific and not too common.

Make it memorable.

Akan names that are short and sweet are usually memorable too. To make a name memorable, make sure it is easy to understand and say aloud. When a name is easy to understand, it automatically fits in the subconscious mind of people and thus cratering a memory in their mind.

To come to know whether your selected name is memorable or not, say it a few times loudly and you will come to know if it’s memorable or not.

Avoid Difficult Names

Some names are creative but difficult to understand and memorize. Although they look cool, they should be ignored. This is because they aren’t memorable. People try to avoid all the dwarf names that include hard to spell words.

When a name has hard to understand and memorize words, it becomes quite impossible for the audience to understand it.
